Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook V1010

60% Fujitsu LifeBook V1010
Source: Laptop Mag English
A good Wi-fi notebook lacking in some multimedia features. Fujitsu's LifeBook V1010 is hardly the most multimedia-friendly notebook, but that's because it's geared toward the small-business crowd. Still, we expected better overall performance from this plain-looking system. Despite its sharp beveled edges and matte black finish, the 6.2-pound LifeBook is decidedly generic. If you're looking for a multimedia-friendly notebook, this system isn't for you. However, if you need a laptop with good Wi-Fi range that can handle a few spills, the LifeBook V1010 should fill the bill nicely.

56% Fujitsu LifeBook V1010 (Vista Business)
Source: CNet English
The good: Inexpensive; attractive screen; comfortable keyboard; decent battery life; on the light side for a 15-inch laptop; Windows XP Pro is an option. The bad: Pared-down feature set; sluggish multitasking performance compared to similar systems; lousy speakers; reflective screen finish. The bottom line: The thoroughly average Fujitsu LifeBook V1010 has a lovely display, solid battery life, and relatively trim weight, but it lacks the features of similarly priced systems. You can get more for your money elsewhere.

Fujitsu LifeBook V1010 Review
Source: English
The Fujitsu V1010 is a newly designed affordable business notebook offered by Fujitsu. This notebook was a direct response to other budget models, including the Sony NR, HP dv6500t, Dell 1520, and Gateway M-6816. With the Fujitsu line starting at $799 or $899 depending on processor choice, how will it stack up against competition that starts almost $200 less? The V1010 comes in two main versions: One offers the older Core Duo T2130 processor with 1GB of RAM, with the other having the newer Core 2 Duo T5200 processor with double, or 2GB of RAM. Both of these variants can be purchased with Windows XP Pro or Windows Vista Business installed. The design of the V1010 is extremely basic and sparse, making some Thinkpads look like designer notebooks. With an unpainted black plastic lid, cheap silver paint, and the absence of any smooth curves you have to wonder if they looked at the new budget competition before hitting the drawing table.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T5200: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.

Fujitsu-Siemens: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo.

In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".
